    Why does this surprise anyone? If you have the choice of fighting at the weight where you can gain a 2nd belt, vs defending a belt and potentially being left with none if you lose, you're gonna choose to try and get the 2nd belt. TJ is an opportunist and isn't going to take the fight where he has something to lose, and Scumbag Dana will use it as an opportunity to flaunt another artificial double champ.

    By the way its weird how he just gets a pass for ducking the fight at 135 where he has more to lose, he's trying to position himself as the 135lb GOAT so why is he afraid to defend the belt against a 125er? And why is he taking this fight over defending against Moraes/Cruz/etc? TJ is more of a duck than DJ.

    This is the best way to get rid of the Flyweight and that belt.

    If Cejudo goes up and wins, why should they cut his division and get rid of his belt?

    But if TJ goes down and wins, they can “absorb”. The lower weight class into BW and merge the belts.

    Well TJ at least defended and is the clear No 1 in his divison. :D
    Also Cejudo defeated the GOAT.

    TJ wants to avoid Cruz incase of Cejudo pulling out, also he probably played ball on who wants to be 2 division champion.

    TJ ain’t risking his 135 belt.. he’s going to go to 125 so in case he loses, he’ll have an “excuse”

    It robbed a dominant champion of his record breaking victory, and arguablly allowed UFC to eliminate the whole division, due to its profitability, though they may argue it was due to its depth, but then we have WMMA divisions with 4 top fighters, and that's being generous.

    Cejudo won the fight fair and square. Yes it was close, but so are many fights. It's part of the game, close decisions are not "robbery".

    It was a veeery close fight. I had cejudo winning but you can definitely make an argument for mm. Too close.

    From a business standpoint:

    WMMA>Men’s flyweight
    The draw in viewership may be slightly lower or equal and the women on average get paid less so there is more profit for the company.
